About this deal

The router is all black with a row of 7 LEDs to the front and an illuminated ROG logo to the top that features Aura RGB which means it can be set to any colour you want along with some pointless modes such as breathing, wave and rainbow. If I need to get another Asus router or mesh nodes, I will hardwire it to the router via the Cat 5 cables in the walls.

Asus is one of a few networking vendors that stays true to the web interface and doesn’t coerce users into a cloud-based web portal, which is excellent for those caring about privacy. However, I’ve just spotted the new TUF-AX6000, which seems to have most of the same specs as the GT-AX6000, except for less RAM (512MB v 1GB). I have been following you for years and your reviews have helped me immensely in picking up the right gadgets and setting them up effectively. GHz quad-core 64-bit CPU, giving it the performance to handle even the most demanding gaming network. Just add the device in the app and follow the simple instructions and after about 5 minutes or less it is all set up and ready to go.

That, plus the GT-AX6000’s more powerful CPU, might translate into better immediate value than the new 6GHz band of the Wi-Fi 6E GT-AXE11000, considering Wi-Fi 7 is on the horizon. Game First / ROG First: An integration network tool designed for ASUS ROG products for network optimization.

I don’t know how Asus Wi-Fi 7 hardware will work out yet, Athar, but what you imagine will likely work out, especially via wired backhauling. BTW, considering you didn’t know the XR700 was an AD router, I think you need to brush up on the reading.One of these is marked as the “game port”, and any device connected to this socket gets automatic priority over the others – a beautifully simple way of giving a boost to a console or gaming PC. The plan is to get a router with at least 2 gb wan connection from the S33, and hopefully will have a 2-3 gb lan port for hardwire to the desktop. For non-networking gurus the default set up really doesn’t need any changes to work as it should, but, if you do know your way around a router, there are a load of settings you can alter to tweak it to your liking either in the app or via the web interface. quad-core 64-bit CPU, giving it the performance needed to handle even the most demanding gaming network.

My references to SDK levels and RF design are based on what RMerlin has stated on these forums (for the former) and the passage of time (for the latter). The GT-AX11000 Pro and GT-AXE16000 ROG Rapture routers, both unveiled last week, are the most unambiguous indication of that fact. By using a next-gen flagship Broadcom WiFi chipset and CPU, combined with ASUS RF technology and other exclusive ASUS technologies, RangeBoost Plus leverages multiple upgraded ASUS features that improve WiFi signal range and overall coverage by up to 38%*. I don’t have any interest in the gaming features, I just want a fast Wifi 6 router that can handle a 1gbps internet connection. I detailed AiMesh AiMesh in this post, and the GT-AX6000 is also one of a few viable hardware options that can deliver Multi-Gig wired backhaul, making it an excellent choice for a home with Gigabit, Gig+, or faster broadband.When two neighboring routers send traffic on the same channel, your router has to wait until the channel is free. Come to think about it, the GT-AX6000 is a good candidate for the best Wi-Fi 6 router to get while waiting for Wi-Fi 7 to arrive. I’m not sure if getting the AX11000 solely because it’s tri-band is justifiable but then I’ll have to choose either 2.

These antennas have limited swivel-ability, and it’s difficult to keep them all vertical — generally the position for optimal coverage — if you mount the router on a wall. QoS” stands for the quality of service, and it enables users to prioritize Internet traffic to support different applications or services. Let me know if there were any settings you set on your test router from the factory setup before running tests.Then again, the inclusion of security and parental controls is a real value boost, and we’ve yet to see a rival router with multi-VPN support. By the way, like the case of the GT-AXE11000, or GT-AX11000, it’s was a bit of pain to attach these antennas to the router.
